Could you please help me identify what's wrong with my plants and what to do about it? Here's a picture of what's going on. The browning areas are also cracking, though hard to see in the picture.

Hi nchiker, Welcome!

I don't know much about tomato plants but I wonder if the issue could be due to stress from a watering issue (not enough water) or possibly fluctuations in temperature? Hopefully other members who grow tomatoes will be along with suggestions soon.

Windburn? Did you protect the plants from the elements when you set them out?

Thanks plantladylin! I have three tomato plants and the one that got maybe too much water the other day is having the worst case of it. But it doesn't look like any overwatering issues I've seen online?

Not intentionally, but they are in the corner of my yard protected on two sides by my wood fence. I wouldn't think they would get hit hard, but it's a possibility.

I've given them some miracle grow fertilizer (just one spreading, and followed the directions as to not over-fertilize). The night temps have been 40s - 50s.

It could be spider mites, one leaf looked like it had a bit of web on it. Check underside's of leafs for webs.
It also maybe leaf miners.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Thanks, I'll check it out! Looking at pics online, that's a good possibility, and hopefully an easy fix.
